By the way, currently, many teaching materials for foreigners to advance their Japanese learning have been announced, however, there are too many teaching materials that simply teach Japanese grammar in Japanese. I feel that there are almost no materials that explain from a foreigner's point of view.

We decided to offer a study course that explains Japanese grammar in English in an easy-to-understand manner. These courses are free and open to the public.

Wow! Free is great! I can study without any worries.
